Commissioned in 2005 by UNC Greensboro’s Women Veterans Historical Collection, Star-Spangled Girls is a review built from diaries, letters, interviews, telegrams, journals, and posters by and about the women who served the United States during WWII. Five actresses portray WAC’s, WAVE’s, Army Nurses, and Red Cross volunteers as they share memories about enlistment, basic training, service at home and abroad, love, and segregation.  Songs from war time are woven throughout the production.

5 actors, 70 minutes
